  3. Lovely posting. I still can't get over the men in the liquor store in Suwanee and their reaction to Michelle's tattoos. I love that when they see "differences" they politely seek to understand them! I am certain that even in Nashville you were a hit.

  9. We are all one tribe or another ... it's just finding it that makes all the difference to us, yes? -J

  10. There's a bit of Cherokee in me too, but not so much that I share that lovely honey color.

    While I did not take your workshop at Sewanee, I did post some photos of your classroom. I couldn't stay away!
